    6 rectangles. Find the area of the 4 sides. Omit the top and bottom. Add up the 4 sides.

    Lateral area is the area of the sides sans the bases. That's why the problem is so specific as to the base edges because the base areas are not part of the lateral (sides) area.

    84 cm2 The lateral area is the sum of two congruent 4 by 6 rectangles and two congruent 3 by 6 rectangles. That gives 2 (24) plus 2(18) = 84 square cm.

    Yes. The formula is perimeter of the base times the height.
